Formscan By Gary Carson - It was a fine training performance to bring PLAYING back in peak order to land a gamble at Clonmel and he looks worth following again to defy a 9lb rise for that victory. He asserted to win in good style then and the extra couple of furlongs here shouldn't be an issue given the way he won last time. Thats The Dream was just denied on his handicap debut at Cork and looks the danger here. He got 6lb for that effort but is still open to more improvement and taking a step up in trip here the ex-pointer looks capable of another big run. Courtncatcher looked like she was just starting to struggle when falling last time at Punchestown and there may just be a couple better treated.
